Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

From the latest post on Warhammer Community : "Come back tomorrow when we’ll be looking at one of the most exciting features in the book – expanded rules for 11 factions currently without a codex, including stratagems, warlord traits and relics…" Yuuuuuss Even if it's 1 or 2 of each even ...

Re: Pay for drones embarked?

It's quite simple really on the pages where all the points are. A. Write down the initial cost of the model/units B.write down any wargear / add ons (including drones etc) C. Add up all the points from the above. As you will notice apart from 1 all of our CC weapons are free, that's because we're no...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I am hoping they start doing posts over the next week with information about what will be in CA, the same way they have been for the various Codexis If it's available for pre order on Saturday then they'll probably start giving teasers from tomorrow like they have with the Codexes, either way we wi...

Re: Alaitoc Counters

I recently played (with a guard list) against an Alaitoc army, i lost big time, ok the hammer and anvil deployment didn't help, nor did the terrain but the main thing was that i understood too late that i should be trying my best to close the distance. What i took from the match is that the rangers...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

I think that the volley fire ability should be re-written so that it clearly states pistol 2 for pulse pistols, rapid fire 2 for pulse rifles, assault 3 for pulse carbines and while we are at that maybe include pulse blasters and kroot rifles in the ability. Yeah but that's really clunky compared t...

Re: What to do with a Pathfinder Team box?

I've never used the Rail or Ion rifles, and I'm not going to put too much love into their uses. They're going to be more of a fun thing for me until I see them serve me well :D As for the Recon Drone, I'm not too happy with its cost compared to what it gives and the unit it gives it to, and I'm fee...

Re: What to do with a Pathfinder Team box?

My next project actually is a Pathfinder box. I will indeed be magnetising them for interchangability, and because I have 6 old metal Pathfinders, I'll be able to make: 2 units of 8(5 plastic and 3 metal), one with 5 Markers and 3 Ion, and one with 5 Markers and 3 Rails. The drones, I'll definitely...

Re: Spin the Bottle

3x2 will be VERY small. Keep in mind your pathfinders will want to be at max range BUT if you have rail rifles, you may want to be within 15 for the sweet rapid fire. It may be best in that case to have both rails in one squad and that one be a "forward" pushing unit. Just food for though...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

My guess is this is for more casual games. Tournament and things will probably not let you use the indexes if your army has a codex. Maybe. Well, the page calls out Match Play games at the top, so I would imagine it works for all game types. I haven't read the full commentary yet, so no idea if tha...

True but if you compare it to a ghostkeel or Riptide I might have to have a little cry :sad:

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

7p actually. Just checked. I'd honestly say a single Carnifex and 3 Stealth Suits are very comparable with an obvious edge for the Carnifex. Carnifex with - 24 18" S6 AP0 D1 weapons - at BS3+ (Enhanced Senses upgrade) - -1 to-hit against shooting (Spore Cyst upgrade) - WS4+ S6 T7 W8 A4 Sv3+ st...

Burst cannon is 10 so it's 7 and technically can only buy them in pairs but yeah 14 for an assault 12 str6 weapon makes the Riptide look even worse than it is now, ok has no Ap but for 40pts more tha...

Re: New tyranids smite spam

Those Carnifex have a lot of long range shooting, and your flamer crisis suits have no good targets. Within our index your list isn't bad. But I recently played the new 'nid codex and the amount of large bodies they can bring at low points is disturbing. The 'keel only has 3-5 fussion shots for an ...
